in palo alto, scott budman, nbc bay area news. >> what a great cause. >> funny. let's bring in jeff ranieri, chief meteorologist working overtime for all of us here. >> lots of water today. let's get a look today, the storm we had today is now moving off to the south. we're getting a much-needed little break tonight we still have showers we're tracking and also winds anywhere from 15 to 25 miles per hour. but the worst is over for today. that's the good news. speaking of today, let ace get a look at some of totals. the max rainfall totals across the bay area, venado in the north bay, in the western hills, you picked up over 8 inches, nrth bay hills overall 5 to 8, santa cruz mountains 3 to 7,s st. helena 5.20 and santa rosa close to 3.5, just in 24 hours. mt. umunhum picked up $7.24
6:46 pm
inches, even impressive at the elevation. let's look at the doppler radar. we're finding lingering showers to the south bay. as you look at your phones you may say, it's range but there's no green on the radar. that's because as it scans it's going through so much cloud cover it having a tough time picking up the raindrops. we'll bring you outside to our live hd sky network tonight. it is wet here in emeryville right at the bay bridge approach. you can see lots of brake lights. you'll encounter that if you're headed anywhere. we know sometimes with the weather you can't stop your plans to have that foot on the brake and be ready to slow down. we're not done yet. we still have two more waves of energy to get through. the next one for tomorrow is very, very small. it's in the upper levels, going to mainly stay off to the north. it will be good enough to keep the onshore flow with us and lingering showers and slick roads throughout saturday. but the bull's eye, at least the last punch coming our way, will be our fourth storm this week. that's going to arrive by
6:47 pm
sunday. that's when our river flooding wills be the highest throughout the entire day. as far as the time line goes, saturday it will be shaping up pretty good at least compared to today. we'll start off with showers here,s spotty up into the north bay down to the south bay. it's going to remain very hit-and-miss as we head throughout the day. so not too much heavy, widespread rain expected on saturday. again be, it may have a little bit of a shower, then you get a bit of a break. as we head to 11:00 p.m. saturday, some of the heaviest rain starts to move close to santa rosa. we'll save that zone of widespread consistent rainfall until sunday morning. that's when we'll see potentially rainfall totals that rival what we had for today. so, again be, one more heavy round coming our way for sunday. where totals could range anywhere from 1 to 3 inches, a little bit less than with the rainfall side with the next system but the ground is so saturated that any more rainfall will add to our flooding concern. what i've done is pinpointed our top three areas of river flooding concern. the first one is the russian
6:48 pm
river at gurnville, 31.3 feet will get it close to flood stage. many of you in guirneville know this quite well and will be watching that river very close. san anselmo creek is 4.2 feet, critical level is 10, we could see it rise close to that. another one to watch. then the third area of concern is actually the guadalupe river in the south bay. with he had unexpected rise on this today with so much expected to be at about 10 feet by monday. flood stage is 17 feet. we don't expect to reach that, but as we saw today, parts of state road 87 did have a lot of water on it, very close to the guadalupe river. just be aware in the south bay. temperatures in the 50s and 60s. very good news in los gatos, the 56th annual children's parade, mother nature will give you a break, showers and wind, temperatures in the low to mid-60s but not expecting heavy,
6:49 pm
heavy downpours like we had today. that's starting at 11:00 again in los gatos on saturday. so good news for you guys. okay, as we head throughout your seven-day forecast, we do have that next storm on sunday. if you're just tuning in, with wind and rain, flooding concerns will be heightened. as we head through next week, we get some showers but maalso dry weather as well. >> the sideways rainfall is bad. >> gets your attention. >> yes, it does. >> tomorrow looks like we can get out and do things in 10 the showers? >> yeah, definitely. just keep an eye out. even if there's not a lot of rain happening, a sudden wind gust, still some tree limbs could come down. just be alert and aware p. >> thanks, jeff. let's go ae's get to sports. >> we have brodie brazil. have you been avoiding us? we haven't seen you in a while. >> reporter: i show up once in a while, raj. when they tell me to. what's going on, guys? with the passing of longtime
